In a statement announcing the soundtrack single, Florence spoke about why collaborating with Disney on the song for the movie was such an exciting opportunity.
“Some of the first songs I ever learned how to sing were Disney songs. And the villains often got the best numbers. So to help create and perform a song for Cruella is the fulfillment of a long held childhood dream,” said the Grammy Award nominated artist. “I’m so grateful to Nicholas Britell and Disney for allowing me so much creative freedom, and for trusting me with Cruella’s beautiful madness.”
Meanwhile, Oscar nominee Nicholas Britell, who composed the score for the film, said: “I am a massive fan of Florence’s, so it was a true joy to collaborate with her on ‘Call me Cruella.’ With both this song and the Cruella score itself, the goal was to really embrace the raw rock aesthetic of 60’s and 70’s London. We recorded everything using all vintage gear and analog tape at Abbey Road and AIR Studios in London, melding orchestral elements with electric guitars and basses, organs, keyboards, and drums.”
The Cruella soundtrack is set for release on May 21. Disney’s Cruella debuts in theaters and via Disney+ with Premier Access on May 28.
